    Lyrics

    (feat. Guy Clark)

    He was sitting in the corner
    At a table all a lone
    A candle burnin' in the darkness
    His glass of wine was almost gone.

    Something about him felt familiar
    And it made me atop and a stare
    The way he held his hands before him
    Looked like he was lost in prayer.

    Hey son, what are you looking at?
    Why do your eyes look so sad?
    There's something in the way he sat there
    Made me think about my dad.

    I'm looking for the answer
    Just like everyone
    I know that there's no ending
    To the love between a father and a son.

    Hey son, why don't you pull up one of those empty chairs?
    Bring it over here by my side
    Buy me a glass of wine
    This looks like a real good place to hide.

    You know I've always been a fisherman
    Fishin' for souls along the way
    You kind of remind me of my only son
    I lost him 33 years ago today.

    I'm looking for the answer
    Just like everyone
    I know that there's no ending
    To the love between a father and a son.

    There's somethin' I'd sure like to give you
    It's a compass that my Father made
    He told me it'd point you in the right direction
    In case you ever lose your way
    You know I've got somethin' here in my pocket
    This little silver cross
    I think my son would want you to have it
    When you think all the hope is lost.

    We're looking for the answer
    Just like everyone
    We know that there's no ending
    To the love between a father and a son.

    I left him sitting at his table
    But I didn't feel alone
    For a moment I could see the light
    Oh, we were almost home.

    For a moment I could see the light
    Oh, we were almost home...
